Staff was great, rooms were great, proximity to hospital also great. You basically take a right out of the lobby and you'll walk into elevator area where you go up to hospital entrance. There is also a gas station right behind hotel in case you forgot to pack some things. Hotel shop very limited with what they have. Price was...

Torie is a phenomenal employee at Courtyard. She makes sure you feel welcome everytime you walk through the door. Actually most of the employees are very nice and helpful but Torie stands out to me. The rooms are clean and kept up nicely. Everytime I visit Birmingham I stay here. There is one employee there with blonde hair (heavier set)...

Stayed on business trip and thought the entire staff at this property went out of their way to make sure I had a great stay. I want to call out Mary Rogers for going above and beyond in getting some meeting room space for me at last minute and helping to coordinate a number of meetings taking place....THANKS!!

Courtyard is one of my favorite hotels and this one didn't disappoint. The rooms were nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They had a clean workout room. The only down side to my stay was the location. Being downtown and near a hospital we heard sirens and vehicles quite frequently. Other than the external noise (which...

Very comfortable room. Just what I am looking for. A place to get work done and sleep well. The bed is great. TV is great. Plenty of places to plug in. Gary and Lesia down in the restaurant/lounge area are outstanding. Corey and Kendra at the front desk are special. All other staff I have communicated with are top notch.

The hotel has nice clean rooms. The Bistro provides delicious breakfasts. The staff, particularly, Torie at the front desk do everything to make your stay enjoyable. The area around the hotel is a bit sketchy, kind of want to stay inside at night.
